I decided to take the plunge..... I just registered for Ironman Lake Placid 2010, on July 25, 2010.
I had signed up for an ironman-distance race last year, but I wasn't feeling ready to put in the training. With my heart not being in it, I decided to drop out and wait until my heart was really in it.
In this sport, and really in anything in life, there's always bigger and better. When I started this sport and was doing sprint races, I thought one day I might do an olympic distance race. Now having completed four half-ironman distance races, I'm ready and excited to take the next big step.
